I have a Yahoo account, just to join a particular Yahoo group. I can't remember the last time I actually logged into my email account, though.

Maybe I'll sign up to Flickr, just to get a little more use out of it.

 

Wow. just logged in. Not a single email in all the years I've had the account, except for an automatically generated "Welcome back!" email.

Hate on reddit can only mean this is a good thing.

Why would you cancel a sub to the best online photo storage and display service because you have to make an account with them

 

I have no desire to create an account with them. I manage pretty much everything via my Gmail account.

You already have an account with them, it just so happens to use your gmail to log in, but you most certainly have an account with them. 

 

As it is there's no other sevrice that's even remotely equal to what flickr is today, 500px is a compeltely different service, it does somewhat the same thing, but they're still completely different.
